I have been working at Fitbit full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I came to Fitbit after working for one of the giants of Silicon Valley, really wanting to go somewhere with the small company feel. While Fitbit is no longer super small, upper management did a great job at maintaining the culture that was there when it was still a very early stage start-up. Everyone is extremely passionate about the products and the company and you are able to pick up on that right away. Very open and collaborative environment, very transparent and flat, tons of different types of people and personalities which really make for a fun, unique environment.

Cons

Only real con is that we're spread out right now...three different floors / offices that can make it to get face time in with all the different teams. That should be solved when we make the move to our new office.

    Pros

    No one here has an ego. This is the only company I've worked at this is devoid of overbearing egos. This means that all the decisions getting made are being done so because of intelligent pragmatic reasoning.

    By far the best project management team I have ever worked with. The PMs here have the right balance of technical knowledge, organization skill and trust in their teams to ensure that projects are moving forward in a predictable way.

    In order to keep pace with our increasing product popularity we are constantly encountering and solving growth related technical challenges.

    There are a tremendous amount of interesting, intelligent and genuine people to interact with professionally and socially.

    Cons

    As the company continues to grow its beginning to lose its small company feel. I'm starting to not know larger numbers of people.
